It has recently come to my attention that my cell phone number, which is also my business phone, is being used for Caller ID Phone Spoofing. What does this mean? It means that someone trying to hide their identity is illegally transmitting my phone number to the caller ID of the person they are calling.
You can read more about this on the Federal Communications Commission website. I have submitted a complaint with the FCC regarding this issue.
THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING! For me, and I know for you as well. If you’ve come to my website trying to figure out who keeps calling you, please be assured, it is not me. Please DO NOT offer any important personal information if you do answer the call.
I have contacted my phone carrier and apparently, aside from changing my phone number, there is nothing that can be done to prevent this from happening. Even if I did change my number, there’s no guarantee it wouldn’t happen again. And since this has been my phone number for almost 20 years and my business number for 13 years, changing my number does not feel like a viable option.
